New Orleans young jazz lions play modern jazz and hip hop with punk rock as Yung vul. Led by guitarist and singer, Dominic Minix, the quartet combines polarizing genres from modern jazz and hip hop to punk and metal in a brooding yet intimate sound.
The next generation of jazz is punk rock with hip hop. From post-Katrina New Orleans emerges a wave of versatile and open minded musicians with an original voice that integrates the old with the new in a sound that characterizes the adventurous vitality of youth. The quartet recorded Cannonball Adderall at The Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans. Cannonball Adderall captures the bands wide breadth of influences “somewhere between Robert Glasper and Bad Brains.” (Indiecurrent)
Cannonball Adderall is available for streaming on all streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, and Tidal
A few notable credits from up and coming New Orleans improviser Dominic Minix include being a featured artist in and produced the musical score for the Guardian UK documentary New Orleans Ten Years after Hurricane Katrina.

Dominic Minix’s music will also be featured in the 2017 New Orleans Film festival for score to the film Straight Line. A recent graduate of Loyola University of New Orleans, Dominic has performed with Jesse McBride, Delfeayo Marsalis, Donald Harrison, Shannon Powell, and toured internationally with the Grammy nominated stretch music pioneer Christian Scott.
